Join us on Friday 28 October 2016 for a special medieval evening as Epping Forest District Museum in Waltham Abbey opens its doors to celebrate Medieval Museums at Night.

The Museum will be staying open late, from 6pm to 9pm, to celebrate the National initiative Medieval Museums at Night, a free one off event.

Medieval Museums at Night invite

Try on medieval costumes

We are encouraging both regular and new visitors to explore the museum in a new light and join in the wide variety of activities we have on offer. There is the chance to try on medieval costumes and have a photo taken, games and more.

There is also the chance to visit our current exhibition Harold II: The life, legend and legacy of England’s last Anglo-Saxon King.

Perfect opportunity to visit

Councillor Helen Kane, Leisure and Community Services Portfolio Holder said: “If you haven’t heard of the museum or have been meaning to visit for a while this is the perfect opportunity to visit.”

“Entry to the museum and event is free but we welcome donations to help keep it free.”
